Publisher's Summary

Mara Altman, author of the number-one Kindle Singles best seller Bearded Lady, turns to the topic of motherhood with touching and uproarious results.

At 32 years old, the recently married author found herself suddenly surrounded by babies, and the expectation of family and friends that she would soon have one herself. Altman’s ambivalence prompted a search for the meaning of motherhood - one that led her to wear a fake pregnancy belly, attend pre-natal yoga classes, debate experts, and even tend to her very own crying plastic baby. Her reporting led to a surprising and uplifting lesson about life, love and the choices we make.

Baby Steps is what to expect when you’re not expecting - a heartfelt and hilarious guide to making the most important decision of your life.

After graduating from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, Mara Altman worked as a staff writer for The Village Voice. In 2009, HarperCollins published Altman's first book, Thanks for Coming: A Young Woman's Quest for an Orgasm, which was optioned as a comedy series by HBO. She has published three best-selling Kindle Singles, and has also written for New York magazine and The New York Times.

Absolutely adore her

After listening to Short Drink of Water I had to listen to any free books I could from Mara. she most definitely will be one of the authors whom I listen to all of their collection on audible. Great sense of humor, great writing and an awesome narrator.

Thought Provoking Study: Baby or no Baby

This is an interesting topic. The author did a good job in her quest to figure out "baby or no baby". She went to quite an extent to get information on the pros and cons. She narrated it very well also.
